Our crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to support this project has hit its target and we are grateful to everyone who supported us.
We are working with Wallsend Local History Society and Haltwhistle Film Project to develop palns to create the documentary bearing in mind the recent government announcement of the easing of Covid restrictions in the months ahead. As part of this project we have also secured funding from Community Rail Network and CrossCountry Trains and this will be used to provide a storyboard at Newcastle Station, some signage at Haltwhistle and a specially written song to feature in the film.
Further updates will be provided in due course.
